An Ode To True Black Metal
Black metal, true and uncomprimising. That is what Lurid Reigns' sole member Hodr Vanorden displays on this ferocious 3 song EP. No frills here. Vanorden show equal parts aggression and emotion on these tracks. The buzzsaw guitars, thunder bass and suicidal vocals give a definite nod to the old school of 90's Scandanaivian metal. All three tracks are stellar cuts of black metal excellence but in my opinion "Father(less)" is the stand out track. Horns up to Lurid Reign for keeping black metal where it belongs... In the underground.
